Poor Boy  Supertramp

[Gm] [Dm] [Gm] [Gm] [Eb-] [D7-]  
[Gm] [Dm] [A7-] [D7-]  
[Eb] [Dm] [Eb] [Dm] [Eb] [Dm] [C-]  
[Bb] [Eb] [Bb] [Eb] [Bb] [Eb]  
[Bb]Can you [Eb]believe me when I say there's [Bb]nothing I like [Eb]better
[Bb]Than just to [Eb]sit here and talk [Bb]with you[Eb]
[Bb]Although I'll [Eb]rant and I'll rave about [Bb]one thing and [Eb]another
[Bb]The beauty of it [Eb]is, hope you?ll agree
Though I'm a [Bb]poor [Eb]boy
I can still be [Bb]happ[Eb]y
As long as I can [Bb]feel [Eb]free
[Bb]So many [Eb]people I know getting old w[Bb]ay too early[Eb]
(Well are you feeling kind of weary?)
[Bb]Just to imp[Eb]ress you with the money they [Bb]made [Eb]
(You better, you better, you better change your theory)
[Bb]One drop of [Eb]rain they complain, and it's the [Bb]same about the ways they're [Eb]earning
[Bb]Well that is not the [Eb]way I'm gonna be
Don't mind the [Bb]rain, don't mind [Eb]snow
Don't mind [C7]nothing, If I [F#-F-Eb-C#]know
[Cm]You will be [Ebm]right here with me
[Bb]________________ [Dm]point of view
[G#]How can we all afford to [Gm]live like you?
[Bb]The simple life is simply [Dm]not enough
[G#]We have appearances we [Gm]must keep up
(Clarinet Solo)
[Gm] [Dm] [D#] [Dm]  
[Dm] [Dm] [D#] [C]  
[Bb]Poor [Eb]boy, if that's the way it's gotta be
[Bb]Poor [Eb]boy, it's you for you and me for me
[Bb]Poor [Eb]boy
[Bb]I've tried all I [Eb]can understanding all the [Bb]fools and all their [Eb]money
[Bb]When half of what they [Eb]got you know they never will [Bb]use[Eb]
[Bb]Enough to get [Eb]by suits me fine, I don't [Bb]care if they think I'm [Eb]funny
[Bb]I'm never gonna [Eb]change my point of view
Don't mind the [Bb]rain, don't mind [Eb]snow
Don't mind [C7]nothing, If I [F#-F-Eb-C#]know
[Cm]You will be [Ebm]right here with me
[Bb]All the way, na-na-nah
Don't mind the [Bb]rain, don't mind [Eb]snow
Don't mind [C7]nothing, If I [F#-F-Eb-C#]know
[Cm]You will be [Ebm]right here with me
[Gm]Gm [Dm]Dm [C]C [Dm]Dm (repeat to fade)
- Most of the chords (especially the Eb and Bb) are power chords (except
the A7 and D7), some of the less common chords maybe a little out due to
the song being played on piano and tabbed for guitar, but I did the best
I could given that I don't yet have a piano. These chords should work on
piano, although some adjustment might be necessary.
- There is a space on the first line that Roger takes the lead on, the
phrase that precedes 'point of view', because there are several
conflicting lines on the internet and I don't have the CD lyrics to hand,
so I left it blank. All other lines are almost definitely accurate, any
that aren't right are likely mistakes on my part.
Great song, one of my favourites by Supertramp, enjoy.
